"Welcome" Mini-Orientation Sessions for New Postdoctoral Scholars on Campus
Honors, Scholars & Fellows House, Room 3009
Dates: January 29, 2018.
If you are a new postdoctoral scholar to the FSU campus, this “Welcome” is a nice brown bag lunch activity that will fit into your busy research schedule. The design will be limited to strictly a 1 hour session, where you will receive the essentials of getting your research started at FSU and have access to Human Resources and Office of Postdoctoral Affairs Staff. At this time, you will also be introduced to the Postdoctoral Association (PDA) - your peer network of postdocs on campus. Attending a “welcome” in your few months of employment at FSU will serve to fulfill your mandatory orientation. Visuals from the January 2017 Welcome can be found in the presentation archive section of the OPDA website. For more information, contact Debi Fadool, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
